Self Respect

Poetry By: Lady Leah

Its about people letting go of self esteem and learning to love themselves, something todays society suffers with because were always in competion with each other.
Ps: I added alot of colour to this piece of work to lighten it up a bit.

She paints here face up
To hide the face behind
She wears the expensive clothing
Done by cheap labor
And over priced
Because the billboard
Demands it, the restless
Sheep are eager to follow
And be stereo-typed into
Burning a hole into their pockets
The sleek straight hair
The mascara packed eyes
The long false nails
And base to hide the face
The clothes to hide
The obvious
Lumps and bumps
When will you learn?
You're beautiful the
Way you are
And you're just a sheep
To follow the never ending flock
Don't you realize individuality
Makes you stick out of the crowd
You trying so hard to be
Noticed among
You're wasting you're money
You're wasting you're time
You're wasting you patience
And wasting you're self
Until you notice
Until you realize
You'll only inflict
The pain you feel
You're an individual
No one will ever be like you
You're unique
And original
I hope you realize
All to soon
You'll be so much happier
And realize your stupidity
Of trying to be like
Everyone else.
